    When I launch Pasta CFW loader it brings me to double black screens and freezes. Gave it 10 minutes, no response. Tried the exit app button combination (L+R+D-pad down+B) and the bottom screen flashes several different colours, settles on yellow, and finally the system freezes. MiniPasta dumps me back into the homebrewloader, not the home menu.


    I'm using a N3DS that has been downgraded to 9.2.0-20U.

    Well, I just used this guide and the mentioned files to downgrade my 9.6 O3DS XL to 9.2, and then install rxtools. Only with some differences from the guide.
    -1st: I checked the downgrade files with SafeSysUpdater. After I checked them, I used SysUpdater instead. For some reason it seems to work more often.
    -2nd: Sometimes I just couldnt launch browserhax, or slide bar thing annoyed me, so i used Ninjhax with Cubic Ninja installed in a Sky3ds card. But it is not actually necessary. Also, menuhax_manager doesnt work with Ninjhax.
    -3rd: I couldnt launch Decrypt9WIP and Emunand9 from browser, so I launched them from Homebrew Launcher.
    -4th: Decrypt9WIP that is in the CFW Kit didnt have .3dsx file, so it didn't appear on the HBL. So I downloaded it from somewhere else and used it instead.
    Other than those, I followed the guide exactly and it worked.

    use Decrypt9 to inject NEVER USE RXTOOLS, it can fragment your NAND which is a big nono... kthx

    Hey, I'm unclear about two steps, and wanted to get some help on them before moving on. I have an old 3DS and its currently on 10.3.0-28U


    So for this step, I take the updates folder the 9.2.0 folder I downloaded, along with all the things in the Downgrade Kit folder. So at this point, on my SD Card, i have a folder called updates, 3ds, PC_Apps, and boot.3dsx. Is this right?


    I copied the dbs folder from the CFW Kit to the place indicated. I then put the SD Card back into the 3DS, went to Software to "repair" the files, but it said that it was corrupted and needed to reset them. So should I click Yes, and 'resetting' will 'repair'? Thanks for any help.

    @AidanLumina I followed your guide for downgrading my New 3ds on 9.8.0.-25E and i started safesysupdater, after it was checking stuff and things seems good it said Error, restart console. I restarted and console appeared black screen. I removed SD and put original one and it boots, but when trying to start settings it gets stuck in the loading screen. What do I do? Don't know what FW i'm on.

    EDIT: After recovering from frankenFW i managed to downgrade to 9.2. Please, mention it somehwere in the guide till someone takes over. To avoid people from bricking their consoles.

    Thanks forthe write up anyways.

    I'm not working on this guide anymore. If you want to take over this, just say so, please. :) This guide is only waiting for someone else to take care of it

    Have a new 3DS with 9.9 and I've been going thru the tut
    till I got to
    "2.1.1 Disable wireless connection, then scan this QR code

    [​IMG]

    by pressing [L]+[R] in the home menu and tapping on the QR code icon.

    2.1.2 Select "OK" to launch the web browser.

    2.1.3 Once the web browser is loaded, press [HOME].

    2.1.4 Enable wireless connection.

    2.2.1 Ensure that your internet connection is good, then open the web browser and let the page load. New 3DS users: The system will automatically take you to the Homebrew Launcher.
    "

    WHENEVER I connect the internet, it tells me to update the firmware. Nowhere was this discussed or explained. Yes, I'm a "noob" but this was supposed to be the easy "noob-friendly" guide, so I got no clue. If I update to the current firmware, I'll be giving myself more problems and would like to avoid that. What exactly am I supposed to do to get this part working? Thank you for any help and I'm sorry for being frustrated.

    This guide provides a process which is deceitful based on the 'easy' title. Also, what type of comprehensive guide doesn't come with pictures to help end users through the provided process?

    EXACT same issue here. I have no clue how I'm supposed to try 50-100 times when one use of safesysupdater does this. Can't get back into the homebrew loader... WTH. No clue what frankenFW is or how to use it to recover.

    BTW, not new to opening consoles, i've done my 360, psp, ps2, ps1, xbox, wii... but usually things like this are covered in the guides, so I apologize for posting my ignorance here.

    Great guide. Was able to update my 4.1 o3ds to 9.2 but now I'm stuck on step 1.1 attempting to load decrypt9wip. i can get to the shortened url but when i click the link displayed nothing happens. tried renaming to launcher.dat, same result. (contents of the extracthereif_o3ds zip have been extracted to the sd). a nudge to the right direction would be totally appreciated. thanks!

    I have successfully downgraded my Japan N3ds LL from 9.9 to 9.1
    Now I first wanted to create emuNand. But when i ran EmuNand9 in homebrew menu it actually opened the app. And then i got blackscreen, the app quit at once and returned to homebrew menu.
    Did i miss something ?

    This is the most confusing guide i have ever seen.

    Easy? oh my god, its a mess.... i appreciate the effort but really... someone without a single bit of knowledge would be completely lost here.

    I guess it was easy back then... whatever. Do realise that it is heavily outdated, though. Haven't worked on this since quite a while. Please use http://3ds.guide instead. :)
